Many thanks to the committee of Bakewell show for the opportunity to judge here. Lovely big ring with short grass and the weather was perfect. I would also like to thank the P.R.T. exhibitors for their super entry at this premier show and for the sporting manner  in  which they accepted my placings. My open class was so full of quality.  Two things I did notice was the improvement in heads, gone are the Fox Terrier type, also almost all the dogs present I was able to span.


1.         Wilson’s Pacolito Russell Sprout of Dragonmoor.Dog full of quality with good bone, straight in front, nice wedge shaped head with neat well placed ears, enough neck and correct shoulder placement, ribs going well back, good tail carriage and angulation, just needs to get a bit more muscle, really harsh coat, moved with drive, a real showman. Best Puppy.Terrier Puppy Group 1.

2.         Storey & Kelly’s Pacolito Rumour Has It. Bitch of good size, balanced head and small well placed ears, correct bite, a strong neck and good shoulders, enough spring of rib, good tail set, nice short hocks and tight well padded feet, not the movement of no.1 but with better muscle should be ok. Well presented and showed well.

1.         Broadberry’s Foxthorn Huron at Ratscallion.
